Towards the end of September, each parish will have a special collection for the “needs of the Church in Canada”. Despite the fancy name, this is merely the annual tax of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops to fund the bureaucracy at the head office. The website of the CCCB says the collection will be on September 30th, but it could be the week before or after in your parish. Be vigilant.
If you’re disgusted with the multiple scandals and unchecked dissent in the Canadian Church, make sure to not throw any money in the collection basket that weekend. If you donate through envelopes, consider writing a message on your empty envelope and then toss it into the basket.
